Kim Morrish, Non-Executive Director of Ground Control Wins Kindness Award
Interview from Women of The Future
The business world is quick to celebrate leaders of profitable and productive workplaces. But how often do those celebrations recognise the part played by kindness? Kindness makes business sense; it impacts outcomes, whether it be productivity, engagement or customer service. People do not forget acts of kindness.
Kind leaders change lives, transform organisations and collaborate. Kind leaders inspire creativity and productivity, share meaningful connections, and give their time so that others can give their best. By empowering others to succeed, kind leaders create an environment for the organisation as a whole to succeed. We need to recognise the contribution of these leaders to business, the economy and society.
Kim is a Non-Executive Director of Ground Control has focused on making Ground Control a great place to work, creating opportunities for professional progression and personal development and establishing an inclusive, diverse and friendly workplace.
Mahatma Gandhi famously said, “You must be the change you want to see in the world.” With the growing population and increasingly interdependent world, kindness, conscientiousness, and compassion are critical. We all need to get along, to think and act with the best interests of stakeholders. Leaders have a unique opportunity and responsibility to model kindness and compassion and shape the very essence of how their teams, organisations and communities work, as well as that of the wider world.
